ISO / IEC 27001 is the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). It has been adopted globally with over 15,000 certificates issued in 117 countries.
The standard provides a framework for an ISMS that enables the continued accessibility, confidentiality and integrity of information as well as legal compliance.
Implementation is an ideal response to customer and legal requirements such as the Data Protection Act and potential security threats including :
